Weather Alert

The District is monitoring the weather and projected level of the Brazos River at the Richmond gauge, as published by the National Weather Service, Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service. The District has a risk of flood waters entering the community from the Brazos River once the river reaches approximately 52 feet on the Richmond gauge.

As a precaution, if the river level at the Richmond gauge is projected to exceed 45 feet, the District will activate an emergency response plan and install Tiger Tubes along the future alignment of the District’s South Berm (seen below) to prevent or mitigate water from backing up into the District from the south and through the District’s outfall pipe. You may recall that Tiger Tubes were deployed north of the District in 2019 as a precautionary measure; however, as the District’s “DRS Berm” has been completed along that alignment, the tubes will not be installed in that location. The District will also rent pumps for both the north and south locations to pump water up and over the berm and Tiger Tubes if necessary.

Notice of Additional Garbage Collection for Winter Storm Debris

Fort Bend MUD 140 is providing additional garbage collection services for its residents in light of the extreme amount of landscape and other debris resulting from the recent winter storm.

On Monday, March 22, 2021, Best Trash will be dedicating a truck for the winter storm debris removal. Items that will be collected include landscape demolition debris, leaves, and any debris that is a result of pipes flooding the home. Leaves will still need to be bagged and placed curbside.

Please ensure the items are out for collection prior to 7am.

The truck that is coming through uses a grapple (the debris being collected with this truck is not being collected by hand) capable of lifting large amounts of heavy debris, so placing the debris curbside is the best option.  Please note that the machine is designed for bulk pickup, so there may be a small amount of residue left behind, which residents will need to place in bags for collection on the next service day.

If there are any questions about this service, please reach out to Best Trash at 281-313-2378 or  Please be sure to let us know you are in FB140-Rivers Edge.

The grapple truck will again come through the District on Tuesday, March 30, 2021.

Additional collection days are tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, April 6, and Tuesday, April 13, depending on need (as determined by Best Trash based on its observations in the field).

Regular garbage and recycling collection will continue as normal.
